In October we attended a joint meeting of the SDC Midlands Region and Nottingham Society of Technical Dyers. The speaker for this event was Charles Ross, a visiting lecturer and specialist in performance sportswear design and sustainability.
Before stating what the lecture was about, one must comment about the excellent attendance from both societies. It was really good to see a mixture and span from students to more mature members; there was at least one young student who had travelled down from Leeds University. The allocated room for the event was overflowing.

Huddersfield University design students investigated colour in the circular economy during a workshop with the SDC. The students examined different fabric samples in teams to find out where the fibres came from, how colour was applied, what the potential applications were for that sample, and how it fits in to a circular economy.

I have a confession… I have a professional crush on someone! I name drop him whenever I can, I refer people to his writing, I tell them where he works, I can’t stop thinking about what he says and how he says it and obviously I follow him on Twitter.
